EW's Sexiest Movies Ever: Weigh in!

1023sexiestmovies_lEW’s special DVD issue spotlighting the 50 Sexiest Movies Ever is on stands today. (I’m kind of loving the image of Patrick Wilson and Kate Winslet engaged in hot post-pool sex on the cover; the muddy rainwater on his upper thigh really drives the "dirty" point home.) You can count down titles 50 through 26 online today, then look for the top 25 on Monday (or pick up the issue on newsstands and see ‘em all now). So tell us, printmongers: Are you all worked up over a movie we left off our list? Blissfully happy about the ones we included? In heat for no apparent reason? Share your thoughts now!

    Can’t argue with your list overall. Almost all the films I expected to be there, were there. Still, one omission of note: Woody Allen’s Match Point. Scarlett Johansson has never been more sensual. The smoldering scene in the billiards room gets my vote for the sexiest. But the lovemaking in the rain and the flirting banter at the restaurant are strong seconds.

    Two serious omissions in your sexy movies list – THE BIG EASY -Who can forget Dennis Quaid’s sunny seduction of the uptight Ellen Barkin in a really good murder mystery? EYEWITNESS – Another good mystery with William Hurt obsessed with Signourney Weaver. He’s a janitor who seduces her with her with a description of how he waxes the floor so slowly, slowly until it shines.

    I mean really, only 50 movies in this category? Should have at least been 100. Here’s a few that took me just a few seconds:
    “Thomas Crown Affair” – Steve McQueen/Faye Dunaway playing chess to Michele Legrand’s score.
    “3 Days of the Condor” – Again with Faye Dunaway held captive by Robert Redford. Very sexy score by David Grusin.
    “Risky Business” Sex on the stairs with Tom C & Rebecca DM. Where was this dude when I was in high school?
    “Against All Odds” – Lots of sweat, Mayan ruins & Jeff Bridges & Rachel Ward.
    “Last Tango in Paris” Anonymous sex in one of the most sexy cities in the world with a not-yet-over-the-hill Brando and a young Maria Schneider. Surprisingly, not totally creepy to me.
    The award for the most obscure? “The Sailor Who Fell From Grace with the Sea” with Sarah Miles & Kris Kristofferson. Fake cat cruelty and weird-ass kids but some pretty hot scenes.

    “Brokeback Mountain”? You did the accurate (and admirable) thing, including so many homoerotic moments (“Y To Mama Tambien” still keeps me up at night), but to exclude THE most erotic encounter onscreen between THE most beautiful men in THE most important movie ABOUT sexuality in years? Confounding. The moment where Jack and Ennis see each other again for the first time since they worked together on Brokeback Mountain… if that scene is not the very definition of movie eroticism (as well as cinematic complexity, as the scene is witnessed by one of the men’s wives), I don’t know what is. Well done, ET. But, wow… You got some ‘splainin’ to do!

    The original Thomas Crown Affair with Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway… sexiest scene their chess game!!!

  • Rick Glowiak

    Thomas Crown Affair, but with Russo and Brosnan,”Do you want to dance, or DO you want to dance?” and after one hot sweaty dance, dude its over to his place where the marble floors and stairs. Classic!

    I agree with most of the ones you picked, but what about The Fountain?! That whole movie oozes love and romance, but I don’t there’s been a sexier kiss than when Tommy (Hugh Jackman) kisses Izzi (Rachel Weisz) in the bathtub.

  • Anna

    I’d definitely go with “Brokeback Mountain”.

    I love EW, but here you got almost as much wrong as you got right. First, the omissions–to which I’ll add: “Angel Heart” (maybe a one-scene wonder, but what a scene) and “Ramblin’ Rose” with Laura Dern; and how about “Wild at Heart” while we’re at it.
    I’ll forgive the omissions–it’s impossible not to let a few slip through. But some of the clunkers on your list, no: the bubblegum sexuality of “Mr & Mrs Smith” and “Ghost”? the cold calculation of “Bound”? the self-satisfied snooze that was all of “Shakespeare in Love”? Uggh.

  • Rick

    How could you leave out “Sea of Love,” one of the sexiest movies I’ve ever seen? Take the scene where Al Pacino frisks Ellen Barkin, and she thinks it’s some sort of role-playing forplay, and so proceeds to throw Pacino against the wall and frisk him. Or how about the scene where they meet at a grocery store, and she is wearing a trench coat with nothing on underneath. Barkin oozes raw animal sexuality in this movie. If you haven’t seen it, go rent it NOW.

  • Karen

    “Sex” isn’t sexy in the movies–what’s sexy is seduction, chemistry and passion and it must be sincere. So why would you omit “From Here to Eternity,” ” Casablanca” and “Summer of ’42” among others?

  • Nathan

    Salo, now that’s hot!

  • K

    I was happy with much of the list — Notorious, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Secretary, but there were some HUGE omissions: Thomas Crown Affair remake, From Here To Eternity, Gone With The Wind, Casablanca, Vertigo, The Piano, The Dreamers, Dances With Wolves
    As far as the TV list, I found it a little out that Sex And The City wasn’t even on the list, but I’m glad Buffy made it!

    The Hunger

    Your list looks like it’s a celebration of sexual deviancy more than romantic sexiness. What more should I expect from a mag that promotes pop-culture, and deviancy is what permeates society today.
